As David Cameron orders a review into legal protection for armed police officers, Lib Dem leader Tim Farron has said it needs to be looked at in "a calm and collected manner".
"It is vital communities have complete confidence in their police. That means nobody should be above the law, including armed officers.
"The police do one of the hardest jobs there is and they must feel protected. But this needs to be reviewed in a calm and collected manner and not in a knee-jerk response to terror attacks", he added.
Former Met Police commissioner Lord Blair has said that armed police "should not be treated as criminals" if they shoot someone "because they have to".
He told the Sky News Murnaghan programme: "These are men and women who go to work to do an incredibly dangerous job for which they volunteer and if they do their duty and shoot somebody because they have to ... they should not be treated as criminals."
